Quick Thought

Its getting late and I have played so many hours of poker in the last few days.  Its not nearly the same number of hands as online, but tiring nonetheless after you do it for 12+ hours a day.

The thing that came to me most today was that people really don’t know the odds of certain things happening in poker.  All day long people tell me how badly they are running because they haven’t hit sets with their last 4 pocket pairs and how they have only had aces once in the last 6 hours(which is ~150 hands).  They have no clue that the odds of making a set are about 7.5 against and you are dealt aces once every 220 hands.   Bottom line, know the math and it will let you focus on what is important, making good decisions at the table.   That’s all for now.  Good luck everyone!
